IT Forensics - Cyber Threat Investigation Senior Manager - London

Cyber Threat Investigation is a practice which is part of IT Forensics (ITF) within EYs Forensic Technology & Discovery Services (FTDS) team. As part of the Forensic and Integrity Services business unit, this group specialises in forensic technology services encompassing eDiscovery, Forensic Data Analytics and IT Forensic / Cyber Threat investigations. Using state of the art tools, our teams support clients with fraud detection, fraud investigation and compliance management. The Cyber Threat Investigation practice supports clients in the detection and management of cyber threats detected as part of proactive technical investigations, where clients believe that they have been a victim of a cybercrime or threat. The practice deploys several platforms and methodologies to discover and detect malicious activity within a client environment.
